Prayer Alone Is Not Enough, Says Dr Olukoya Of MFM
The General Overseer of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries International (MFM), Pastor (Dr) Daniel Kolawole Olukoya, has said that prayer is not enough inducement for God to bless you.
He made the statement during the MFM Eagle Hour Programme (an empowerment programme made to propel members to prosper through their works) at the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries International at Onike, Iwaya, Lagos.
The empowerment programme takes place every second Sundays of the month.
Olukoya went on to explain further that there must be something in your hands that God can bless you with.
“Prayer is powerful, but prayer alone is not enough. God does not bless nothing, no matter how you pray,” he said.
“There must be something in your hands that God can bless. In the bible, God had to bless Job through his works (Job 1-10). God does not bless nothing. With Moses’ rod, he wrestled the Israelites out of Pharaoh’s hands. ”
He added, “What is that thing in your hand? Do not despise the days of humble beginnings. The only place where success starts from the top is the grave.”
Also at the programme, the graduates of Dorcas Empowerment Programme (a programme made to teach members skills such as tailoring, textile making, shoe making etc.) were awarded gifts: The graduates from the tailoring department were given 27 tailoring machines while those from the other departments were given cash as gifts.
